Striking Distance is a action-thriller about a maverick Pittsburgh policeman who loses his job after he shares his suspicion that one of his colleagues is a serial killer, but goes on to hunt the suspect while the killer starts knocking off his female associates.

The film stars Bruce Willis as Tom Hardy, Sarah Jessica Parker as Jo Christman, Dennis Ferino as Cpt. Nick Detillo, Tom Sizemore ad Det. Danny Detillo, Brion James Det. Eddie Eilo, and Robert Pastorelli as Det. Jimmy Detillo. The film is directed by Rowdy Herrington.

Tom Hardy comes from a family of cops and has just broken the cardinal rule - never speak out against another cop. Which now makes him persona non grata with the other cops. Presently there's a serial killer on the loose and when Tom and his father and some other cops corner him, a big chase ensues and Tom's father is dead.

A suspect is then brought in whom Tom doesn't believe is the one but the rest of the cops just don't want to believe him and think that his objective is clouded. Eventually he is drummed out and the only position he could get is at river rescue. Two years later, with his beliefs still as fixed as before the killer seems to be back. Like before, nobody believe him and some people think that he is copy-catting the killer.
